I'm planning the 2nd Annual Pick-and-Paint Pumpkin Patch Party for October 23rd. The [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=216314#216314]pumpkins will be ready[/url], and in fact they will be early, but I think they'll keep for a few weeks.
I'd like to have a patch of sweet corn ready for picking on that same day, if possible. The ground is already prepped, and I have two packets of [url=https://www.ferry-morse.com/product_detail.aspx?id=7295]Bodacious SE hybrid[/url], ready to go. It's a 75 day variety, but I'm not sure whether planting this late in the season is going to change that dramatically.
This [url=https://www.digitalseed.com/gardener/schedule/vegetable.html]vegetable planting calendar for Southern California[/url] says that I can plant straight through August, but it doesn't say what effect it'll have on maturity date.
Of the two SE varieties I have in the ground now, [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=216699#216699]one is running a few days early, and the other is running a few days late.[/url]
I don't want to be late, since the date of the party is fixed, and I don't want to be too terribly early, since sweet corn loses its sweetness. I'm wracked with indecision!!! As of today I'm 85 days out from the party.
